Today is Sunday, February 12. We went to Bojangles for breakfast (as we do every Sunday), to church, and then back home where we've been ever since. I tend to be a homebody anyway so it's good for me. Ken is an on-the-go type of person so he gets a little restless. But that's nothing a little cleaning out of the refrigerator can't solve. (Yes, that's one thing he did today.)
Here is what my Bojangles biscuits looked like this morning.
I love going there around Valentine's Day. I think it's cool that they put the extra effort into making their blueberry biscuits heart-shaped. That's pretty special for a fast food restaurant, don't you think?
Today we have more encouragement from the Psalms.
"We put our hope in the Lord. He is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in you alone."
I've been feeling a little tired and discouraged today. Not bad. Just a little. Certainly not unusual for a person in my situation. Actually, not unusual for a person period. I guess it's just part of life. However, when you have been confronted with a life-threatening illness, every little twinge causes you to ask yourself, "what is that?" "is my tumor growing?" etc. It's a little annoying, really.
But when I get discouraged, the words of these verses help to sustain me. My hope is in the Lord. He is my help. He is my shield. My heart rejoices because I know Him. I trust His Holy Name. He gives me unfailing love. My hope is in Him alone. It's hard to NOT praise the Lord when you read verses like this one!
Here are a couple more Valentine cards.
I had extra flowers cut after my last die cutting episode, so I used them to make this card. Some of the flowers on the first card are actually connected. This was not my pIan and I was going to throw them away and then decided that they were usable, kind of like the old chain paperdolls. I hate to throw things away. :)
AND TELL: stamp is Papertrey Ink (Heart Prints); cardstock is PTI (Kraft); patterned paper is Pebbles (with Love: Be Mine); ink is PTI (True Black) and Stampin' Up (Riding Hood Red); pearls are SU (Basic Pearl); also used dies from PTI (Beautiful Blooms II #3), miscellaneous ribbon trims, and vintage sheet music.
I guess that's all for tonight. I started this post HOURS ago and am just now finishing. I really should get more efficient. Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with more — I have something in the works. Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and Kisses to you!
